40th Fluid Dynamics Conference and Exhibit
The 40th AIAA Fluid Dynamics Conference will include papers covering all aspects of fluid dynamics, particularly those relevant to aerospace applications. Topics range from basic research and development to applied and advanced technology, including novel experimental and computational observations, interdisciplinary papers that bridge theoretical, experimental, and numerical approaches, and papers that provide innovative concepts and analyses, or especially new insight into flow physics. Sessions will be planned that include papers related to low and high speed flows, instability, transition, turbulence, vortex dynamics, and various aspects of flow control. The conference is collocated with several other conferences to enable close synergism and interaction between a broad range of research disciplines in fluid dynamics, and several joint sessions on topics of broad interest will be arranged.
10th AIAA/ASME Joint Thermophysics and Heat Transfer Conference
The AIAA/ASME Joint Thermophysics and Heat Transfer Conference will feature papers on topics in heat transfer and thermophysics. Conference sessions will focus on technical topic areas related to all aspects of thermal energy transfer in aerospace and mechanical engineering applications.
Additionally, each year, the AIAA Thermophysics Technical Committee offers a Best Paper Award in both the Professional and Student Categories (with the student receiving a monetary award). Student submissions are strongly encouraged.
27th AIAA Aerodynamic Measurement and Ground Testing Conference
The 27th AIAA Aerodynamics Measurement and Ground Testing Conference is a partnership of the Advanced Measurement Technology Technical Committee (AMTTC) and the Ground Testing Technical Committee (GTTC). The conference will feature abstracts of proposed papers on the science, technology, and application of ground testing and aerodynamic measurements, from basic research, to measurements for understanding complex flows, to facility development, to system test and from research laboratories to test facilities and the lessons learned. This year's conferece will feature sessions built from the four main areas of interest including: Measurement and testing technology research and development, Advances in ground test capability, Operations and policy, and Ground test facilities infrastructure sustainment.
28th AIAA Applied Aerodynamics Conference
The 28th Applied Aerodynamics Conference provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of technical material in diverse areas of theoretical, computational, and experimental applied aerodynamics. Conference sessions will focus on technical topics in the areas of wind-tunnel and flight-testing aerodynamics, unsteady aerodynamics, subsonic, transonic, supersonic, hypersonic aerodynamics, vortical/vortex flow applications, high angle of attack and high lift aerodynamics, boundary layer transition and drag prediction, low Reynolds Number aerodynamics, airfoil/wing/configuration aerodynamics, propeller/rotorcraft aerodynamics, weapon carriage and store separation aerodynamics, innovative aerodynamic concepts/designs, aerodynamic design methodologies, active flow control applications, unmanned aerial vehicle designs/testing, missile/projectile/guided-munitions aerodynamics, aerodynamic-structural dynamics interaction, icing effects on vehicle aerodynamics, application of artificial intelligence techniques to aero problems, and application of CFD methods to aerodynamic configurations validated against experimental data.
The conference is collocated with several other conferences to enable close synergism and interaction between a broad range of research disciplines in applied aerodynamics.
41st Plasmadynamics and Lasers Conference
The 41st AIAA Plasmadynamics and Lasers Conference will address current basic and/or applied research in the areas of plasmadynamics, lasers, electromagnetics, diagnostics, and related topics in nonequilibrium reacting flows. Contributed papers will describe contemporary experimental, analytical, and computational efforts. The program will include many interdisciplinary papers and contributions describing the state-of-the-art development in the areas of plasmadynamics and lasers. Conference sessions will focus on the technical areas of plasma and laser physics, properties, chemistry and kinetics; Space plasma physics and applications, plasma interactions, space laser applications, tethers, and space experiments; plasma materials processing and environmental applications, hazardous material disposal; laser devices and advanced diagnostics; laser optics and fluid-optics interactions; magnetohydrodynamic power, flow control, and modeling; weakly-ionized gas issues; and space plasma propulsion.
5th Flow Control Conference
The 5th AIAA Flow Control Conference is being held in conjunction with the 40th AIAA Fluid Dynamics Conference. This biennial event is a forum for all aspects of fluid control technology while emphasizing the multidisciplinary interaction among a diverse range of research disciplines with a common basis in fluid dynamics. The conference program will consist of invited papers, contributed papers, and a poster/demonstration session.
